SYNOPSIS:
In 1941, folklorist Alan Lomax was sent from the Library of Congress to the Mississippi Delta to record an oral history of the blues lineage. Hauling 500 pounds of recording equipment powered by his car battery, Lomax ventured across nameless roads to discover the most beautiful and harrowing songs ever sung.
BIO:
Jesse Kreitzer is a New England Emmyģ award-winning filmmaker from Vermont whose creative interests include rural storytelling, ancestry and acts of compassion.

In 2007, Kreitzer received his Bachelorís degree in Visual and Media Arts from Emerson College, magna cum laude, and was the recipient of the Graduate Award for Achievement in Photography for his frame-by-frame restoration of an 8mm film of his father. He was awarded a MA Cultural Council Artist Fellowship Grant the same year.

Working in narrative and documentary modes of cinema, Kreitzerís interest in rural filmmaking derives from a personal desire to restore his own fractured ties with the land. For Kreitzer, rural storytelling aims to foster deteriorating bonds between humankind and nature, preserve the ways of our ancestors and champion for a collective cultural heritage.

Kreitzer is currently an MFA candidate and instructor in the Department of Cinematic Arts at the University of Iowa. He is also the former Executive Director of the Bijou Film Board, a 43-year-old nonprofit cinema dedicated to exhibiting independent, documentary and foreign film.
